Poll : Where is AmigaWorld.net user "Franko"?
Franko has likely left the planet, now living on a space station in geostationary orbit
Franko has bought an Atari Falcon 030 and is, thanks to its MIDI port, now working as a professional DJ in Dubai night clubs
Franko presumably never left AmigaWorld.net, and is now biding his time
Franko never was a member of AmigaWorld.net - he is just a remnants of a hazy, collective memory born out of necessity

With 5,922 registered members, AmigaWorld.net can be thought of as being one of the planet's largest web based Amiga communities. Over the years, quite a few members have remained faithful to the site while others have come and gone. While some may be relieved that provocative users have left the platform, others may think of former AmigaWorld.net members in a fond manner. One of the more controversial names is Franko - a person known for his antics and shenanigans, more often than not stirring up emotions in the AmigaWorld.net fora. For reasons seemingly unknown to the general public, Franko seemingly vanished from the face of the Earth - being last logged in on May 12th, 2013 his faith remains a mystery. In this special AmigaWorld.net Sunday Poll, you are kindly - but firmly - asked to theorize what you think has happend to Franko.

A Franko poll without mention of squirrels?

I declined to vote, since you persist in not offering pancakes.

Franko, friend Peath, is an idea.
And Ideas never die.

This truth was spoken long, long time before that oh so famous graphic novel and movies came along, putting such words in Joe Average's mouth.

Franko might have left the forum, but the spirit of his deeds remain with us.
His torch, carried by the many who relentlessly push back with sarcasm, SARCASM, YES, but never with vulgarity, at the pathetic concept of "NG" Amiga.

At the bloodthirsty sharks whipping nerds with cardiovascular risk to create frankenkernels.
At the shameless vultures selling slices of a corpse they robbed from a grave.
At the endless rants and banter and molecule-size grained benchmarks of some obscure RISC board created for agricultural seed sprouting analysis which "SHOULD BE PORTED TO AMIGAOS 4.1.2.7.9 NOW!!! CLICK HERE TO PETITION"

What was I saying?
Ah yes, Franko lives.

Warmest regards,
MEGA RJ MICAL

My, what a coincidence!
Exactly this was my question since a while and unfortunately Got nowhere in my search, Albeit some suspicions were arisen Recently by behavioral patterns of an unspecified Jolly fellow in this forum, but since i lack any evidence My hypothesis will Indeed not be disclosed Currently and will need to watch my text cases closely.
Have all of you A merry christmas and happy Lovely new year away from this discraceful period if i would be unable to write here again.

Franko is, as far as I can see, running a YouTube-channel now with focus on music.

Franko's YouTube-channel

If you look at his avatar, you will see boing balls and the Amiga checkmark.

I think he used this avatar on Amiga forums as well, but might remember incorrectly.

I told him that he was a country unto himself and he could not reply to it.
I think he said he was a communist or something over on a.org.

Up to "over on a.org" I thought these were the lyrics to a song.
